Pros and cons of rhinoplasty
The pros of rhinoplasty include psychological comfort and self-confidence you feel 1–2 months after surgery.
The cons of rhinoplasty include possible dissatisfaction with aesthetic results, although this is rare nowadays, especially at Medical Club Grace. Before surgery, we enable you to look to the future using state-of-the-art computer-aided 2D and 3D modelling technologies.
Types of rhinoplasty
Types of rhinoplasty are as follows:
1. Depending on the purpose of surgery:
2. Depending on the type of deformity (shape or function) and the location of deformities to be fixed:
o Straightening the nasal septum—septoplasty
o Reshaping the nose, nostrils, tip, or columella (a septum between nostrils)
o Augmenting nasal bones and strengthening their structures—augmentation rhinoplasty
o Septorhinoplasty (septoplasty and rhinoplasty being performed simultaneously)
3. Depending on the degree of invasiveness and the type of surgery:
○ Open rhinoplasty
○ Closed rhinoplasty
Closed rhinoplasty is less injurious and leaves no external scars. Besides, by maintaining skin integrity, the surgeon can see the results of reshaping your nose right during the procedure and help you recover and get back on track faster.
Contraindications to rhinoplasty
Unfortunately, nose reshaping surgery isn’t available to everyone. You’ll be denied surgery if you have:
o Multiple allergies to local and general anaesthetics
o Severe diseases of internal organs
o Severe diabetes mellitus
o Oncological diseases
o Clotting disorders
o Acute and recurrent chronic infections, including facial herpes
o Folliculitis and other skin disorders in the nasal area
With rare exceptions, we don’t perform rhinoplasty if the patient is under 18 or over 55–60 years old. Nasal plastic surgery should be avoided during pregnancy and lactation.
